A lot of the health abnormalities we spot on some parts of our body are not there just for nothing.
As much as some could be, there are still others that suggests a serious damage that is going on beneath the surface, right inside of our body in one organ or another disturbing the normal duties carried out by the system they control.
A very perfect example of this situation is when there is fluid retention in the tissues of the leg caused by disease of the kidney.
This condition is medically called Edema.
The organ called kidney is a paired organ located at the retroperitoneal aspect of the body.
They function regulate the body fluids among the other duties they perform, when they are diseased which often comes in form of infection, inflammation or presence of stones these functions carried out by them are left dormant.
This is the reason why you could see your legs getting swollen because the organ responsible for keeping the movement of fluid regulated has been damaged.
Kidney diseases a times result from frequent consumption of sugar, poisoning from heavy metals, excessive smoking, excessive caffeine intake.
As soon as you begin to observe that your legs are getting swollen and lifting them up now feels heavier than it used to, it is very necessary you see your doctor.
Please mind you, this appearance on your legs doesn’t necessarily mean you have kidney disease as there are other conditions that can lead to it, in fact pregnancy is a physiological condition that can also lead to such.
This is the reason why you must see your doctor so as to confirm what the cause could likely be.
Frequent exercise helps in the the blood flow into the kidney thereby helping cleanse it from some toxins.
Frequent water consumption is also very helpful to kidney.
Consuming fruits and vegetables regularly is also very helpful to the kidneys.
Thank you so much.
